Supermodel Gisele Bundchen recently opened up about her near-decade long marriage to NFL icon Tom Brady, and revealed that there's really 'no secret' to their strong relationship. 

In speaking with Arianna Huffington on an upcoming episode of the Thrive Global podcast, Bundchen explains:

“You know, I don’t know there’s a secret. I think it’s important to honor each other for who we are and to not try to change the other. Just to fully accept each other."

“I think it’s important to always keep the communication also loving and respectful and current,” Bundchen adds. “I’m not going to talk about something that happened, you know a year ago. We address it, and then we let it go. Because I think with acceptance comes freedom.”

“When someone you love is happy, it makes you happy, or if they’re sad it makes you sad,” she shares. “You suffer with them and you have joy with them.”

The happily married power couple tied the knot in 2009 and have two children together, a son and daughter.

Gisele, 38, most recently made headlines when she shared her new cover shot for Harper’s Bazaar Australia magazine for the January/February 2019 issue.

Tom, 41, is looking to lead the New England Patriots back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive season, in search of his sixth Super Bowl ring. Heading into their Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills, the Patriots are currently sitting at 9-5 and in the #3 seed in the AFC.
